No, one couldn't. If one did, one would be wrong. Anyone remember the embryo that Kaji brought with him from Germany in the same fleet that brought Asuka and Eva-2 to Japan. That was Adam. Not to give too much away, but Second Impact was caused when Adam was shrunk to an embryo by the Katsuragi Expedition, releasing an enormous amount of energy in the process, melting Antarctica, flooding the Earth, and killing half of the human race.

Correct. In part.

Not precisely.

Correct, in part....for the inactive ones.

Not always....Worked pretty well when Gendo used it to destroy Eva 4 and seriously injure Touji in the process after that Angel had taken control of it. And, that would give away too much....

Correct. There are some beliefs that there is a storage rooms with a finite number of souls, and that when it is depleted, Armageddon comes. Hence, the fall off of births after Second Impact.

The Gundam already has an Minovsky engine, why would it need an S2? N2 mines huh? Isn't that a violation of the Antartic Treaty? But see the GP02. And an I-field is mostly like an AT field.
